Fair Day in Court for Kids Act
There have been many issues in court – one of which is that young children have to speak for themselves in court about not getting deported; while on the other hand, there is a prosecution attorney arguing otherwise. In order to solve this problem, a couple of senators got together and wrote the “Fair Day in Court for Kids” Act. This act will “would provide unaccompanied children and other vulnerable populations with attorneys to guide them through the complicated immigration court process”. The bill would gain support of many organizations including the Kids In Need Defense Org. According to the KIND (Kids In Need Defense), they stated that “This legislation recognizes that the best way to ensure fair and just decisions for unaccompanied children in their immigration proceedings is by ensuring that they have counsel by their side.” Now that the issue is resolved, what do you think about the Act and how kids can represent themselves in court?
